    Given the backstory on the trainer and the jockey, Big Brown is making this the basis of a terrific movie script. Ten years ago the trainer was living in a stable. The jockey, a devoted family man, is racing to allow his son to see him get a triple crown before losing his eyesight. Hollywood is hard pressed to come up with two more compelling characters.

    Go Big Brown!

    Seems a curious alternative to me.. could it be a misquote?
    Big Brown looked like he could race again today... well, maybe tomorrow..

    Wow--a seemingly effortless race by Big Brown, with an astonishing burst away from the field in the homestretch... We might well have a Triple Crown winner this year...
